So that's why Deniro's guinea pig looks so nervous. Does it come with the side of sunscreen lotion, or was that extra?

Judging from the reflections, some people look overjoyed to get their gourmet meal. Where was that? Is it really guinea pig?

Cliff, that guy looks tasty, though I'm not sure that would be enough food me. Fairly tiny rodent. I'd have to go with it's big cousin, the Capybara:

the sounds of a guinea pig

wheek – a loud noise, the name of which is onomatopoeic, also known as a whistle. an expression of general excitement, it may occur in response to the presence of its owner or to feeding. it is sometimes used to find other guinea pigs if they are running. if a guinea pig is lost, it may wheek for assistance.

bubbling or purring – this sound is made when the guinea pig is enjoying itself, such as when being petted or held. they may also make this sound when grooming, crawling around to investigate a new place, or when given food.

rumbling – this sound is normally related to dominance within a group, though it can also come as a response being scared or angry. in these cases the rumble often sounds higher and the body vibrates shortly. while courting, a male usually purrs deeply, swaying and circling the female in a behavior called "rumblestrutting". a low rumble while walking away reluctantly shows passive resistance.

chutting and whining – these are sounds made in pursuit situations, by the pursuer and pursuee, respectively.

chattering – this sound is made by rapidly gnashing the teeth, and is generally a sign of warning. guinea pigs tend to raise their heads when making this sound.

chirping – this less-common sound, likened to bird song, seems to be related to stress, or when a baby guinea pig wants to be fed. very rarely, the chirping will last for several minutes.

squealing or shrieking – A high-pitched sound of discontent, in response to pain or danger, or when dropped into the deep fryer.
